Color temperature (Kelvin) note:
The color temperature is measured in Kelvin (K). The color temperature of a LED light describes how the light appears when the human eye looks directly at the illuminated LED source. Please consider the following information when selecting the color output of your led light:
2700K – 3300K = Warm White
When the desired lighting effect is "warm"/revitalizing, use light sources in the 2700K - 3000K range. The light ranges from orange to yellow-white in appearance.
Living room, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, restaurants/commercial, ambient lighting, decorative outdoor lighting.
3300K – 5300K = Cool White
When the desired effect is neutral or bright white, use light sources in the 3000K - 3500K range. For a slightly bluer, "cooler" effect use 4000K.
Basements, garages, work environments, task lighting, bathrooms.
5300K – 8000K+ = Daylight
Daylight color temperature at noon is 5600K, but sunlight color temperature can vary widely based on time of day and weather conditions. To give the perception of daylight (bluish white light), use light sources with a color temperature of 5000K or higher.
Display areas, security lighting, garages, task lighting.
